We have already seen an Art Nouveau bag from Whiting & Davis, in the form of their large and sumptuous hobo. Now, however, they bring this colorful design to a much more evening appropriate purse.
The colors aren't perhaps what you would obviously expect in an Art Nouveau clutch. The images are, sure, with their curls and angles, but the colors make this very different to the typical palette of greens, blacks and silvers. The mustard isn't particularly to my taste, but others may disagree, and I suppose it does tie the whole thing together with that shiny gold chain handle. The metal mesh, of course, is much more of that era, and this is probably what manages to make this wristlet look so vintage and suitable.
As for the purse itself, this is surprisingly large for a wristlet. It even has a interior zipped pocket, which hands down beats those useless slip pockets most designers offer. This means you do get more practicality, although I don't see what has been gained by adding only a wrist strap instead of a shoulder strap.
This is an interesting and pretty bag, which will be likely to stand out from the crowd.
